Contact our online GP in times of bereavement

  1. Telephone the doctor or LAS who will visit to confirm that death has taken place
  2. Contact a funeral director
  3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of the Cause of Death (usually from the GP Surgery)
  4. Take this to the local Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available). Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later
  5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after the necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased's finances (a fee is payable for each copy)
  1. Contact a funeral director to inform them that thier services are required
  2. Collect the Death Certificate from the hospital then follow steps 4 - 5 as above

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required
